The Arenal Volcano: A Costa Rican Landmark Boasting Seismic Excitement
Formed some 7,000 years ago, the Arenal Volcano is one of six active volcanoes found in Costa Rica. There are also sixty dormant or extinct volcanoes within the country’s borders. Although currently in a resting phase, Arenal has been Costa Rica’s most active volcano for the past 43 years. Up until about 2010, Arenal had produced huge ash columns, explosions, and glowing red lava almost every day. And at an elevation of 5,437 feet, Arenal looms large over the surrounding countryside.
Because it is currently in a resting phase, you may be unable to see flowing lava and large plumes of ash when you visit. Still, scenic Arenal Volcano National Park (29,692-acres) is a favorite of tourists, offering rainforest hikes and canopy tours, canyoneering adventures, whitewater rafting, beautiful waterfalls, horseback riding, a plethora of trails, observational points, and so much more!
